Thank you so much to all our backers for your incredible support of William Kentridge's masterpiece, Triumphs and Laments! We exceeded our target of raising $80,000 allowing us to pay for much of the cost of the opening events on April 21 and 22. I hope you are as thrilled as we are to be part of this wonderful public art event in the Eternal City!

Thanks to your support, work has begun on the final ten Triumphs and Laments! This image shows five of the images as of yesterday, including "La Dolce Vita".

For now, please take a look at his short panoramic film of the piece by our colleague Tom Rankin.
